    Am I building a bottleneck?

    No, the ryzen 3000 and 4000 will be still compatible with the AM4 socket, with a motherboard bios update. Just like ryzen 1000=14nm, ryzen 2000=12nm, but still AM4.

    Am I building a bottleneck?

    You went from 2x8 gb to a single channel ddr4 2400mhz stick, dropped the motherboard down a notch, dropped the psu down a notch, dropped the case down 2 notches, and for what? The rtx2060? at 1080p 60hz?

    When are you planning on building it? The new ryzen 3000 series should be revealed in a month, so the first and second gen stuff should get a price reduction, also ryzen 3000 is 7nm, so pretty cool.

    Radeon VII vs 2080 ti

    Radeon VII is better at compute, but 2080ti is better at gaming.
  5. So for that you would first need an analogue to digital converter, which would convert the 3.5mm to a digital signal that the apple headphones understand, and then convert that to a lighting connector. I don't even know if there is a chip capable of doing that, and what that would cost, so: Just buy normal 3.5mm headphones, and buy a lighting to 3.5mm adaptor, for using the headphones with your i-device.

    1050ti basically is really bad value. It performs far worse than the rx570. Drop the stupid water cooler, and update the GPU to a GTX 1060 6GB.

    Ok, these are nice, but your case is Micro ATX, so ATX motherboard wouldn't fit in there. You could go for MSI B450M mortar, or B450M Bazooka Plus. Woops sorry, you are all good. Your case supports both.

    Can you give the model of the motherboard? Also change the PSU to a corsair CX450, Watercooler is absolutely not necessary, the cooler that comes with the processor is good enough, More info needed about the ram, how much ram, and is it a single stick, or 2 sticks? Optional: 480gb SSD's are already really cheap, so i would go for a 480gb ssd.

    27inch, 144hz, 1440p with freesync

    MSI OPTIX MAG271CQR ticks all those boxes, and is even cheaper, but it is a Curved monitor, and it is VA.

    DaVinci Resolve and Fusion

    But can you get all versions of resolve with the studio, or for example, if i buy resolve 16, is the licence locked to 16 forever, even if 17 and 18 come out? So do i need to keep buying those licences?

    One of the Radiator fans making humming sound

    But if you mount that humming fan to the front, do you still get that noise? Also if it is noctua you should be able to get a free repair, as those are expensive fans.

    One of the Radiator fans making humming sound

    So your radiator has 2 identical fans, but one makes the noise, but the other doesn't? I would first try remounting the fan carefully, maybe try it outside of radiator, and if the noise is still there then RMA/buy a replacement, something wrong with the fan.
  15. If you have money i would get a different SSD, something like 970evo, or MX500 for OS. The SSD you listed is fine for game storage etc, but because it is a QLC i wouldn't trust it with my OS or important files, especially if you plan to use the drive for more than 5 years. TLC would be better, if you can afford it. I would also get a Corsair Lighting Node pro, that way you can control those HD fans with software, no need for inline controls. Otherwise it looks fine

    Is it just me or can you see this?

    Yeah, the product is right there: So check the monitor settings, and maybe try to view the image on an another device.

    How much expected lifetime

    Have you repasted it? That should lower the temp, if you used a really nice thermal paste.

    Disable access to HDD in Windows 10

    Unplugging the sata cables would be the safest. You could get one of those hotswap front bays, so you can physically eject the disks. https://www.amazon.com/ICY-DOCK-Trayless-Hot-swap-Mobile/dp/B072618W1D/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3QOXVZXSYZ8PH&keywords=5.25+to+2.5+hot+swap&qid=1555513539&s=electronics&sprefix=5.25+to+2.5+hot%2Celectronics%2C359&sr=1-5

    I5 9600k vs ryzen 7 2700x

    So intel will magically display more than 144 frames per second on a 144hz monitor. K

    I5 9600k vs ryzen 7 2700x

    I have pretty much the lowest speed ryzen out there (1700), and i get over 144hz in any game at 1080p. Only if you want to do 240hz or up you should consider the minescule speed difference of intel processors, but 144hz is very doable.

    HyperX Predator RGB or Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO

    I would say Kingston is far more established in the memory business, but they are both good companies, so i would say these are both very reliable. But what are the CL's of those 2 kits?

    What tech are you knowledgeable about?

    Im the guy that knows something about literally anything, but because im not specialized in any form, i also kinda don't know anything more than a few meters deep.

    My PC Freezes When i Hit It

    Probably some cables or component is a bit loose, you should check it out.

    Does the youth generations choosing hip-hop over punk-rock?

    You are overanalizing something and oversimplifiying it at the same time. Different people have different music preferences. Some listen to rock, some to rap etc. It isn't bound by their age.
